Missed your post. Sorry. The only part of the mouse that shows on most of my mice is their head. But since it was suggested, I tried to add a little color with paints. The composition of the felt doesn't lend itself to paint very well. It either absorbs in and makes spots or it only sets on the uppermost fibers and looks strange going in all directions. Other fabrics would work differently, but then wouldn't work for me like the felt does. It was worth a try. Since I haven't had any requests for any mixed colors yet, I think I'll stick with the felts available. I have tan, beige, white, Chocolate and dark brown, black and gray. Also, they take so much time to make now. If I add more steps, that's more time involved. My husband says then no one would be able to afford them. LOL I do appreciate your interest and comments. Some of my best ideas come from others. Please continue to challenge my brain!!!
